(PRWEB UK) 1 June 2016
Multi-award winning consultancy Inemmo Leadership Development Solutions, has joined forces with organisational performance experts Lumina Learning to bring Lumina Spark and an entire suite of progressive professional development tools, to businesses in East and West Africa.
Older psychometric methods are being swiftly outmoded by a business climate that depends on leaders’ scope to harness strong and effective talent, no matter where it lies – whether in new recruits who could bring valuable insights and life experience from unexpected quarters, or current staff members that have more to offer than they may yet have been able to show.
While the older methods have boxed people into particular stereotypes and roles – as well as constraining them to the here and now – Lumina Spark compels individuals to think about where they want to be. And, most importantly, to reconsider negative views they may have of their own skill-sets by unlocking latent qualities and expertise.
Inemmo and Lumina Learning’s move into East and West Africa coincides with a surge of unprecedented innovation throughout the continent. Fintech is taking off in a big way; the mobile-money segment is boosting financial inclusion; the Internet of Things is becoming a fact of life – and Africa has just anointed its first ‘unicorn’: a startup valued at more than US$1 billion.
In tandem with those exciting trends, the WEF’s head of Africa has recently said that the continent’s role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be led by women and girls. If African nations are to benefit fully from this trans-formative time, it is vital for their business leaders to be aware of – and engage with – every available corner of the talent pool to deepen its culture of self-belief.
“Lumina Spark helps people identify how to improve their working relationships with each other.” explains Stewart Desson, CEO and founder of Lumina Learning. “With the fast pace of development in the continent, Lumina can bring a tangible benefit to businesses, and so excited to be a part of it.”
Lumina Spark has dual applications:
For learning and development agencies, Inemmo can work with you to introduce Lumina Spark into your service offerings for corporate clients, ensuring that you will be in step with the most cutting-edge methodology in professional development.
For corporate HR departments, Inemmo can show you how Lumina Spark enables you to refine the hiring process – selecting talent with something unique to offer; targeting areas to develop once candidates are hired, and managing that development on an ongoing basis.
“Guaranteeing sustainability through the delivery of ‘best-in-class’ products and services is an ambition of most business leaders,” Inemmo MD Joy Maitland points out. “In a very powerful way, the Lumina Learning suite of tools helps individuals and teams to determine how best to improve current skills and performance to increase business success.”
“Higher-performing employees deliver around 40% more revenue than average. The Lumina Learning suite of tools is not only powerful, but sophisticated – and Inemmo is very pleased to be in a position to share these tools with the business community in East and West Africa."
